Magic Card Canvas
Roughly drawn sketch. Playing around with composition and design of the figures.
Beginning stage of black and white value, while still experimenting with the design of the figures.
The pose, design, and placement of the figures are changed to fit the composition better.
Figures are still being worked on for the sake of composition, while trying to maintain the importance of value.
A further development from the last stage overall. Overall value still needs a lot more work. Position of the angel changed to fit along the golden spiral.
Particle effects at work now that figures are well enough established. Highlights being pulled out to read stronger.
After many tweaking and refinement, the black and white value is finally complete. The angel has been darkened accordingly to the light source and to have her gaze read a lot stronger.
Glaze of base color applied.
Slowly building up color on each individual figures.
Illustration at its near completion after a lot of coloring. Refinement needed to clarify the balance between soft and hard edges.
Final illustration after refinement.
Appreciate if you've enjoyed this illustration.
